Backlash

A friend found this earlier and I am really floored.

I grew up in a Roman Catholic home so I wasn't exposed to any other side of Christianity. Are there really Christians out there that believe this???

Sorry it is negative, and it is TOTALLY activating a pain body, but like Tolley said last night...sometimes it needs to be done.

For me, II do NOT agree with everything Oprah said.  But, I do believe it is possible to take elements from Tolle's book and still maintain your Christian beliefs.

To me this video is saying "Christians, close your minds. Don't seek any further knowledge or a deeper experience of God than whatever we give you in church. It might be dangerous for you to do so."

Just what is wrong with Marianne Williamson proposing a Department of Peace? We already have a War department, a military, etc. They just kind of left that hanging like it's a BAD thing but not really saying why.

It will be interesting to see the Church take on Oprah!

Okay so I watched it finally.

I didn't even know about the Department of Peace. HOW COOL IS THAT?!? At least I learned about the Department of Peace from this vid. There's a positive for ya! =)

Love Always,

After sitting with this information I have reached this conclusion.

It was created out of fear.
Fear of losing what they have, and not getting what they want.
Lotta money & control in religion.

I too had a painbody reaction C..after I laughed I was angry..now, it's flowing through me..
The anger was in this body, now it flows through..
Good exercise for strengthening of being.

I almost agree with both of them if that is possible. I consider myself Christian. I really thought a great deal of the book was in alignment with my beliefs. He highlights throughout how a Christian would call it XYZ, a buddist may call it abc(whatever concept he was refering to at the time).

We are the light of the world bc God is in us. God works through us. I have heard that  before. I definitely didn't agree with the afterlife part but he said how he doesn't think about that. I didn't take it as if he didn't think there was one, he just didn't address the issue.

As a Christian, I do believe in Jesus and God. I can't imagine being a Buddhist or not believeing in heaven but that didn't threaten me.

After reading this book, and realizing that labels are egoic, do Christians feel their painbody activate in defense of that label?
Just curious.

And too, has A New Earth caused an awakening, or letting go of labels such as "Christian" for any of you who do claim that label?

I don't think of Christian as being a pain body just as I don't think of being white as a pain body. I think that's your issue.

The Label.."Christian"
In the book, Tolle says "Labels are limiting."  Labels are only a need of egoic mind..
"Christian" is a label, that's what I was referring to. In the same text that Tolle does in the book.
So allow me to elaborate..
If it were suggested to you, to rid yourself of the label Christian, do you think you would defend your label? Thus activating your painbody in doing so?

I did not say Christians are all in painbodies, or even that you were..
I simply reiterated what Tolle talks about in the book, when it comes to labels, period.
This youtube clip prompted me to ask some questions to those of you who do claim the label "Christian."
